- By GalavanteChicago From The InsideOur Galavante founder, Christine Drinan, who’s been to over 100 countries around the world and is on her way to 195, has a local guide of her favorite spots in Chicago, which is where she grew up. "Although I live in New York, I was raised in Chicago. So, Chicago, with all my friends and family, is a nostalgic place for me. It has some of the very best food in the country, and I always try to find one new spot every time I’m there. But I also love going back to my old standbys."13 items
